Only in the legacy enterprise / OEM installer which hasn't changed at all for Win8. The installer that 99% of people see (i.e. people doing upgrades, or cleaning installing from an existing installation) is totally new for Win8.

Where is the flamebait? If you believe there is flamebait, please report it. We can't do anything about it if you don't report it and we don't spot it. None of Mark Christian Klass's post seems like flamebait to me. Surely you're not suggesting that him suggesting people aren't adapting well to change is flamebait?
More flamebait from *******s. And the Mods like it instead of acting on it.

I hate Windows 8
Posted 07 September 2012 - 15:48
Do you hate the things it does?
I installed it so that I could format a hdd I was having problems with.
I found it a pain having to enter my email and password and the intrusive nature of the software.
However I did buy the upgrade and when amazon.co.uk dispatch it then I will probably install it as an upgrade.

I've never had a problem with Windows 8 itself, though some apps don't work properly. That's to be expected though, and it's not Microsoft's fault. I don't see why people whine and cry so much about something as simple as a start menu. I myself have never used the start menu by clicking it and clicking on programs, and selecting the program I want. I press the Windows key, type the name of the app, and press enter. I can still do that in Windows 8, and it's much faster.
To all you whiners out there, please, PLEASE try to adapt to change, and not be so resistant to it. Just because you're used to a certain way of doing things doesn't mean it's necessarily the best way.

Why do you guys feel so threatened by options? The same type of visual cue in Windows 7 will only allow us to click it more easily. It will not make support more difficult because everybody is used to a visual cue. Booting directly to the desktop will not make support more difficult. In fact it will make support easier if a user needs to go to the desktop for something.
MOST of the complaints will vanish if they just did those two things. I know some people prefer the Start Menu vs the Start Screen (such as myself), but at least give us a button to press to launch the Start Screen and some of us (like me) will be happy.
